I was gonna say latex glove up the left nostril, but that was little to gross a mental picture to paint.

Oh, wait, I just did

Thanks for the laugh, Chuck. And also, thank you for NOT explaining how it got stuck to your skin in that area.

Re: One handed epoxy work

This kind of advice is what led to the disaster of '09.
It's no fun walking around for two weeks with a latex glove stuck to your left butt cheek.

Just be advised.

The act of applying batter......... Never battered and fried fish and kept putting your egg washed fingers into the flour and back and forth until you had a ball of goo on your fingers?

Though I can some value in use the technique when beating or wounding too. You may not want your bloody fist to leave evidence on the door knob. You guys are rough.

The act of unlawfully beating or wounding a person or mere touching in a hostile or offensive manner.

Apparently, in Minne's experience, you keep one hand for the "dry" work and one for the wet.

What is battering?

Nice work. That's also a chef technique for battering. One wet hand, one dry hand.

One handed epoxy work

I'm sure others do this but I've never seen it mentioned. I had a small epoxy repair and tried something new that worked great.

I put a glove on my left hand only.

It took a little concentration for a while but by the third day it was automatic.

I had my right hand clean for tools and my left hand for picking up cloth and patting it down.

I had two sticks.
One dirty stick that I held with my left hand to slip under some wet cloth to cut a dart with my clean knife and right hand. It was wet both ends

I had one clean stick I used with my right hand to help position a piece of cloth. It was wet only on one end.

When the job was done my hands and tools were clean.
